Last decade. I'm not one to needlessly update every 20 minutes because I
have better things to do than to babysit a computer doing nothing up dating
itself (and breaking something---whether it be an existing program or work
flow or something).
Besides, Unicode is constantly being updated. How long is an acceptable
amount of time to update *every* computer you use to get the latest and
greatest Unicode fonts installed because you decided to use the latest emoji
characters for an identifier?
